I am off to Arizona to check things out for myself and attend an Immigration Policy Summit in Phoenix. So, I will be out standing with Arizona, in Arizona. Plus, I can't wait to have a real summer day what with this Global Ice Age weather we've been having all summer.
Today I was sure it would snow.
But tomorrow, I will attend various talks, rallies and events to learn more about the "issues". I have to say that I would rather not be this involved, but it appears I have no choice because things just keep going from crazy to thumb-sucking insane. So, I will get off my self-centered rear and drive to Arizona to participate in this thing called democracy which we seem to have momentarily misplaced.
That part makes it easier, because it is really a beautiful state, even if you are not wild about big holes in the ground... which are impressive, but can be hazardous if you are not paying attention. I think my favorite so far is Sedona. Quite spectacular is Sedona, despite being overrun with new-age hippies. There are some great art galleries for browsing and dreaming and all that.
The last time I was in Phoenix we went to this steak house where everybody enters through the kitchen, Mafia style. I wish I could remember the name because I would like to go there again. OK, It's late. Got to get some sleep before I drive off and get myself hopelessly lost in the desert.
